Calendar* Correction: Elvis Presley

Websites are all over the place on the correct date for Elvis Presley's local television debut.  Some say it was March 4, or March 5, even March 26, but all are incorrect.  Some websites also report that the name of television station was KWKH-TV.

Presley had been performing with the Louisiana Hayride since October 16, 1954.  The first time he appeared on the television version of the show was March 3, 1955, and the show was televised by KSLA in Shreveport, Louisiana, according to the book Elvis Presley:  The King of Rock 'n' Roll by Jean-Pierre Hombach.
